Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight in Bethlehem, in piercing cold.
In that hour hear my prayer oh God and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
All hail, most loving, most holy, most amiable infant Jesus, King of our souls. Blessed be the hour in which thy Holy mother will give thee to us as our ransom. Oh most beautiful above the children of men, give us the grace to receive thee worthily on the feast of thy Nativity, and grant us the true spirit of that festival
Pray: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and 1 Glory be.
The word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.
Let us pray.
Oh God who gladdens us by the annual expectation of our redemption, grant that we who joyfully receive Thy only begotten son as a Redeemer may behold without fear the same Lord Jesus coming as a Judge, who with thee liveth and reigns, world without end. Amen.
Message of Our Lady of Medjugorje, 25th December 1992
“Dear children! I desire to place all of you under my mantle and protect you from all satanic attacks.
Today is a day of peace, but in the whole world there is a great lack of peace.
That is why I call you all to build a new world of peace with me through prayer.
This I cannot do without you, and this is why I call all of you with my motherly love and God will do the rest.
So, open yourselves to God’s plan and to His designs to be able to cooperate with Him for peace and for everything that is good.
Do not forget that your life does not belong to you, but is a gift with which you must bring joy to others and lead them to eternal life. May the tenderness of the little Jesus always accompany you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Prayer to the Child Jesus.
Most dear Lord Jesus Christ, who being made an infant for us, was willing to be born in a cave, to free us from the darkness of sin ,to draw us to Thyself, and to inflame us with thy holy love.
We adore thee as our Creator and redeemer, we acknowledge and choose thee as our King and Lord and for tribute we offer thee all the affections of our poor hearts.
Dear Jesus our Lord and our God we ask you accept our offering and may it be worthy of thy acceptance.
Pardon us all our faults, enlighten us and inflame us with thy holy fire which thou came to bring into the world and enkindle in our hearts.
May our souls thus become an altar on which to offer thee our mortification and sacrifices. Grant that we may ever seek thy greater glory here on earth, so that we may one day come to rejoice in thy infinite loveliness in Heaven, Amen.
”Do not model your behaviour on the contemporary world, but let the renewing of your minds transform you, so that you may discern for yourselves what is the will of God — what is good and acceptable and mature.
And through the grace that I have been given, I say this to every one of you: never pride yourself on being better than you really are, but think of yourself dispassionately, recognising that God has given to each one his measure of faith.” Rm 12:2-3
Dear Jesus, we pray for the gift of knowing God’s Will for us in our life and the grace to accept it and always live it. We ask You to give us wisdom to discern what Your plans for each of us are and we pray that the Holy Spirit would be our constant guide and inspiration
